    A Fireman's Little Girl
    I am very dedicated to my work. I wear firefighter shirts every day, even when Iím not on duty. The fire department is my second home, and my second family. It often seems as if my life revolves around the fire department, but it means nothing compared to my little girl. I am normally a very friendly person, but if you hurt my little girl you will make me mad. I know my little girl is growing up, even if I donít like it. She seems to like you, so Iíll tolerate you dating her, but here are a few things for you to think about while youíre with her:

    First of all, I go into burning buildings to save people that Iíve never even seen before, you canít imagine how protective I am of my little girl.

    I once broke a manís sternum by accident while doing CPR to save his life. If thatís how I help people what do you think I do when Iím ****ed off?

    I investigate arson fires. I know exactly what clues to look for to prove it was arsonÖso I also know how to make sure nobody can tell how a fire started... and I know where you live. Remember Backdraft?

    Iíve worked more car accidents than youíll ever see, the sight of blood doesnít bother me one little bit.

    Itís normal for me to carry chainsaws, axes, and various other extremely sharp tools in my car..touch my little girl and me and you take a little ride.

    When we burn down a house for training, nobody ever looks in the closets.

    I use the jaws of life to tear doors off wrecked cars. They cut though solid metal like a hot knife through butter. So watch your paws or get the jaws.

    Sirens and air horns can really muffle the sounds of someone screaming.

    Most of my friends are cops, paramedics, or firefighters. WE ARE 911. If you make me mad who do you think youíre going to call for help?

    I have access to explosives.

    I am well trained in emergency medicine. I know exactly which arteries are the easiest to sever and which ones bleed the most. (remember all the sharp tools?)

    Even though my little girl insists that you are a ďnice guyĒ and not like most other guys, I know better. I was once your age, I know EXACTLY what youíre thinking. Because of that I already have plenty of reasons to not like you. It wouldnít take much at all to push me over the edge, and I just sharpened my axe.

    So if you want to date my little girl you better keep these things in mind. Fireman are protective by nature, and there is nothing we are more protective of than our little girls. Whenever you're alone with her, you better remember that someday you may be alone with me!

    what if the guy the daughter is dating is a FF too, then what does Dad do...
    You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

    I've already thought of that. I have had that poem on our refrigerator for about 6 months now. I have two teenage daughters just getting to dating age.

    If a FF wants to date my daughter, I would assume that it would be a FF much junior to me on the department(in a few years, you have to be 19 here), I would be fine with that. I would also tend to think that he would be scared to death of me. That's my trump!

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to control it.

    I will also require a $50.00 deposit just in case she is not home on time. Then they ask, "Who will have $50.00 to date us?" I say, we'll find out.

    I'll give them their money back when she is home early. If not, refer back to the poem.

    Here is a better idea.....

    When the boyfriend comes walking up the sidewalk to pick up your daughter, toss him a bullet. When he catches it, tell him if your daughter isn't home by such and such time the next one (bullet) comes a hell of alot faster!

    Or once you do it tell him if his daughter is not home at such and such time you promise he wont be able to catch the next one

    I have experienced this poem from both sides of this discussion.

    I have a thirteen year old daughter from my first marriage...... *lifting axe to show potential boyfriends*


    AND


    When I divorced my first wife I started dating the daughter of one of my captains. She had just turned 18 and her father was still VERY protective. *looking over my shoulder to make sure he's not still ****ed*

    My oldest son is about to hit THAT age, he says he is already in love with my best friends (who is also on my department) daughter. I guess I need to have a talk with him. "Look son, you know how Fire Fighters are, keep your hands to yourself and you'll be ok. Keep one thing in mind son, it aint just your neck you'll be saving, I may need her Dad to save my life tomorrrow."

    Thats actually a very good and very interesting point, from a lot of perspectives. And, something I think a lot of us don't actually give thought to. Kinda like a soldier going out with the General's daughter..... And NO I have never done that! Or any daughter of someone I work with. Not that the thought has never given life in my mind, just never tried. The "throw him a bullet" image comes to mind.
